New Goat "Piney Tim" - Update - Name Changed to "Eastwood"

Well, because of some character traits we picked up on, and because the previous name is too much associated with Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol," which celebrates Christmas in a way, which is something that we reject, thus causing us a conscience problem, and because we were probably just going to be calling him Timmy anyway, we are changing his name to Eastwood, because he seems to often give us those squinty eyes saying, "Go ahead...make my day!"

You can see it in the difference between these two pictures. You'll probably have to click on each picture (and maybe enlarge them from there) to be able to see it; but in the second one, he's giving "the look":





We probably spend a little more time than is necessary on our animals with this type of stuff (naming, etc.), but we also like to try to be cautious and consistent with what we do.

David and Susan,
I like Eastwood better anyway. But watch out for the horns! Don't "make his day".
